You don’t need a massive collection of clothing and accessories to arrive in style anywhere you go. Most women feel that if they have a black dress, a pair of heels and a pair of flats, figure-flattering jeans, a comfortable casual shirt or tee and a jacket or cardigan they are well on their way to having the clothing they need for almost any occasion. In addition to clothing, there are several wardrobe essentials that a woman needs to extend the versatility of her wardrobe.
Over-sized bags are timeless and clutches continually remain a popular accessory. You only need a few carefully chosen, versatile handbags to always have the perfect bag to accessorize your attire. Handbags that are black, gray, green and navy will complement most outfits.
Patterned scarves in bold colors can provide a visually exciting wow factor to a black dress. Metallic or subtle colors can increase the elegance of the dress. Bright solid colored scarves can be a fun accessory to casual clothing such as jeans and a tee. Having a few light-weight scarves and some thicker warmer scarves in your collection is a good way to assure that you can rely on this versatile accessory year round.
A small assortment of earrings is all you need to elevate the elegance of a black dress or liven up a casual ensemble. A pair of hoop earrings, diamond studs and a pair of dangling earrings will carry you through a work week, a leisurely weekend or an elegant evening. Necklaces are definitely an essential accessory. Necklaces of different lengths should be part of a woman’s accessory collection. A statement piece such as a cage necklace is the epitome of elegance, yet is equally attractive when worn with casual clothing.
Belts are an accessory that can alter the appearance of a dress or tunic. A wide belt and a thin belt in black or with a gold or silver finish are the basic belt designs that should be included in your belt collection.
Compiling a small collection of wardrobe accessories will make it easy for you to create a variety of outfits using basic wardrobe items. Keeping your clothing and accessories organized and to a minimum will help expedite your morning routine and assure that you can quickly pull together the perfect ensemble for a fun or fancy event.
